Most everyone has seen one or more of the movies in the Star Wars series. And everyone remembers Yoda, he of the strange syntax, legendary wisdom and mastery of the Force, borne of many battles and experiences, that he imparts as Jedi Master to fledgling Jedi Warriors.
Lonnie Sciambi is “The Entrepreneur’s Yoda,” who with more than 30 years experience as an entrepreneur and CEO of small businesses, brings his wisdom and his mastery of Business Success that he imparts to entrepreneurs as an advisor and mentor. He has been through it all, spending most of his career starting, managing, growing or turning around small businesses, including selling several of his own. Mr. Sciambi has also invested in or advised dozens of other companies from the earliest stages of startup through ongoing growth and on to exit.
He is author of "Secrets to Entrepreneurial Success," which is based on his years in the entrepreneurial trenches and gives entrepreneurs the edge they need. Wherever a small business is in its growth cycle - from start-up to exit and everything in between - it provides "to-the-point" advice and easily implementable solutions for issues entrepreneurs face, every day.
Mr. Sciambi brings an energy, enthusiasm and dry wit to every speaking engagement. His talks are littered with “war stories” and anecdotal items that virtually anyone in business can relate to. Through his experience, he deilvers candor that "cuts to the chase," without buzz words and consultant-speak. Attendees leave his sessions with a smile and, invariably, multiple lessons that they can apply to their own particular situations. Mr. Sciambi has spoken before groups as large as several thousand as a small as a half dozen; before bankers, small company CEOs, accountants, consultants and entrepreneurs. He has given multi-day seminars, internationally. He is comfortable with, virtually, any type or size business audience.
Mr. Sciambi’s avocation is baseball, where he coached for more than 30 years at every level from tee-ball to American Legion and his management and speaking style reflect his coaching background.
